I have known Jess since my junior year of college. She knew me before Steve, and I knew her before Eric. We talked about guys and guy problems, and when we'd get married- if we'd get married. We saw many of our friends run off into the distance with their new husband, then it was soon our turn. Jessica was there when I got married and I'm so SO happy that I get to spend the entire day with her as she says "i do" to the one for whom she's been so patient. She is an amazing girl and I think Eric knows how blessed he truly is to be marrying her.Eric is a gentleman. He has a great heart. He also has great taste in beer, which I respect. Eric and I also knew each other in college, but we usually talked about theology and movies - not guys. He's always been a friend whom I admired, and I was always intrigued by the stories he told. The engagement shoot was the first time I saw them interact as an engaged couple. Eric has been living in Missouri for a while now, but he is coming back to my home town to marry his bride. I have just fallen in love with them, as a couple. They are fun and silly, but still romantic and beautiful. I loved taking these pictures. It was an absolute honor that I was able to be a part of it. Jess and Eric - You two are amazing. I cannot wait to see the things God does with you two. It blows my mind thinking about it. I'm so thrilled to capture the beginning of it all. Best wishes! I can't wait until your special day!
